Thinning hair can leave you feeling deeply demoralized—but fortunately, there are steps you can take to halt the thinning and to once again enjoy a full, healthy head of hair. Clients who come to Advanced Hair Solutions in Auburn Hills, Michigan, will have a chance to learn about many different treatment options—among them laser hair therapy.
If you’ve never considered laser hair therapy before, you may have some questions about how it works. In this post, we’ll walk you through some of the basics, and help you determine whether this is the right hair loss treatment for you.
How Hair Grows
The first thing to understand is how hair growth works. Here are some basics:
- Your hair grows from the follicles on your scalp. Those follicles are constantly cycling between growth and rest stages.
- When they’re in the growth stage, follicles produce new hair; when they are in the rest stage, they shed hair to make room for new growth.
- This process can be disrupted by hormonal changes and also by lack of blood flow to your follicles—resulting in thinning hair or even in full hair loss.
What Laser Hair Therapy Does
Now we come to laser hair therapy. This treatment method is safe, effective, and approved by the FDA to treat thinning hair—and here’s how. Low levels of laser light are targeted to the scalp, where they can stimulate new blood flow to the follicles. Often, this renewed blood circulation is enough to trigger fresh hair growth even in previously dormant follicles.
These effects are even more likely if you pair laser hair treatments with trichology-based topical solutions, which can ensure that the scalp is a healthy place for new hair production.
Receiving Laser Hair Therapy
It’s important to note that laser hair therapy does not produce overnight results. Multiple treatments are needed each week, and it may be a couple of months before you start to see significant results. With that said, most clients who stick with their course of treatment do see results.
Also note that treatments are painless and convenient. That’s because we offer our clients the option of at-home laser treatments with small, portable laser combs and helmets. You can receive your laser treatment from the comfort of your house or apartment, all while watching TV or reading a book.
Is Laser Treatment Right for You?
While laser treatment is an effective treatment, and a good option for many women and men alike, that doesn’t mean it’s the best option for everyone. For those whose hair loss is more advanced, or who wish to see results more quickly, alternate solutions may be recommended. Some examples include:
- Trichology and scalp treatments
- Custom hair systems
- Extensions and hair integration
- Micro Point Link
These are all hair loss treatments that we offer at our salon; to learn more about them, we invite you to call and schedule a consultation with us today.
